LakewoodAlive’s Festive Event to Illuminate Downtown Lakewood on Dec. 7

When LakewoodAlive’s signature holiday event returns for a 13th consecutive year this December, this festive occasion will blend old favorites with new traditions in the making. 

LakewoodAlive announces the return of the Light Up Lakewood Beer Garden sponsored by Roundstone Insurance as a centerpiece of Light Up Lakewood 2019 taking place Saturday, December 7, in Downtown Lakewood.  Located at the intersection of Mars and Detroit Avenues, this Beer Garden will afford Light Up Lakewood attendees aged 21+ an opportunity to purchase and enjoy a selection of local craft beers within a festive atmosphere.  New this year, this Beer Garden will also offer a hot mulled cider.

Now in its second year, the Light Up Lakewood Beer Garden will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. during Light Up Lakewood and will welcome guests on a first-come, first served basis as capacity permits.  Children under 12 may enter the Light Up Lakewood Beer Garden provided they are accompanied by an adult aged 21+.

“The addition of the Light Up Lakewood Beer Garden has enabled us to expand the appeal of Light Up Lakewood, while maintaining the festive, family-friendly nature of this community event,” said Ian Andrews, LakewoodAlive’s Executive Director.  “We are excited to continue this new tradition of Light Up Lakewood, and grateful to Roundstone Insurance for helping to make this feature possible.”
